Boston's wealthy elite OUTRAGED over new shelter for illegal immigrants in their neighborhood

Residents of Fort Point in the Seaport couldn't fathom living amongst illegal immigrants in the Democrat-run sanctuary city that they voted for.

Boston residents living in the one of the city's most expensive neighborhood are outraged over the city turning an office building into an emergency shelter for illegal immigrants.

The Boston elite expressed severe grievances about the decision at a community meeting on Tuesday evening, yet state officials had no answers for them. Residents of Fort Point in the Seaport couldn't stomach the idea of illegal immigrants living among them in the sanctuary city.

Among the greatest concerns were safety and security, which have been raised in sanctuary cities across the US.

Brian Curley, a resident in the community, told WBZ-TV that state officials did not give a voice to the community before making its decision.

"I think there's a lot of angry residents who feel the same way I do that this was being forced on us," said Curley.

The office space owned by the Unitarian Universalist Association will house 80 illegal immigrants once it's officially morphed into an overflow shelter. The site of the shelter is located at 24 Farnsworth Street.

United Way of Massachusetts Bay, a nonprofit that the state has selected to open temporary shelters for migrant and homeless families, plans to get the new shelter up and running "as soon as possible," said Gov. Maura Healey, according to the Boston Herald.

"We’re working through all of that," Healey told reporters, declining to give an exact date as to when these illegal families would move in. "I just don’t know how long it’s going to take to get everything operationalized and work things out with the community, work things out with the city."

Although United Way ultimately selected the site, the governor stated that her administration supports the space's use "because we need to continue to find safe housing for people."

"We continue to be in dialogue with the community and with the city," Healey said.

However, community residents said that officials gave them no answers at the meeting on Tuesday evening. Officials informed the residents that there would be another meeting on Friday and they hoped to have more answers then.

"How is it a done deal when you cannot answer these questions," a resident said.

Curley added, "There was a lot of questions tonight, there were not a lot of answers."

General Scott Rice, a state official who is overseeing security at its migrant shelters, vowed to keep the community safe.

"Our track record has been very good," said Rice. "We've had very, very, very few incidents."

One woman asked at the meeting, "How are you going to ensure we're safe?"

"I would like to see a little bit more compassion, that's my point of view," another man interjected.

The outrage comes amid a historic crisis at the US-Southern border, with 7.3 million illegal immigrants entering the country since Biden took office.

Last week, ICE arrested a 34-year-old Guatemalan illegal immigrant in Gloucester, Mass on child sex crime charges,
